From the winery we headed to Smugglers Notch. As we were approaching the notch coming down 108, we saw our favorite sign – "RV's and Trucks not recommended". So what did we do, you ask? We continued on anyway and it turned out to not be an issue. There were some areas that were tight for two cars pass, let alone an RV and a car, but there wasn't much traffic through the notch today. We just drove through today and headed down to the Smuggler Notch State Park Campground. We got settled in and had some lunch then headed out on a hike to Bingham Falls. Again, this park is great cause they love dogs and the Nashinator can come with us, so he is loving NH and VT. The falls weren’t too far away from the campground, maybe a mile. It was pretty wet/swampy to get there at times, but overall a pretty easy hike there. The falls were pretty, nothing too big, but were very serene. We followed the river downstream to see all the different falls
Tuesday, September 20th Smugglers Notch, VT
We planned on getting up early and doing a hike out to a pond at sunrise. Jared checked the weather last night and it wasn’t supposed to start raining until around 8am so we figured that we would miss the rain on our hike. Mother Nature had different plans though and it was pouring from 5am on. So we decided to sleep in until 8am and then head out to crawl around in the caves at Smugglers Notch instead of doing a long hike in the rain. We made our way up the road, passing again the sign that recommended buses, trucks and RVs not to go further, until we got to the Caves
